I thought I had issues - client just came in.

Stepped off the dock by accident and dunked himself and his iPhone 5 - fried it.

Bit rattled he knocked a drink on his MacBook Air where his iPhone 5 data was backed up ..( we'll get it back but the Air might be fried ).:rolleyes:

Back out on the boat...no GPS which he was using the iPhone for ....hit a submerged rock and took out his lower end....

A very expensive long weekend for him. We ARE dependent on the toys eh.

My adventure pales in comparison. :D

Buffalo rides with the OEM up front and the Michelin Pilot in the rear. At my next service, due shortly, I'm going to try the same setup.

The choices I'm given are 14 and 16" when it's a 15" tire size.

Am I missing something??

Burgman spec 120/70R15M/C 56H, Tubeless

.
I believe on motorcycle superstore that when you enter the tire size on the finder, and it will not let you pick one of the perimeters, it means that they are out of that size tire.
try smalltires.com or bikebandit.com etc.

AMT no longer shows the 120/70R15 Michelin Pilot Sport ether. It only shows a 120/70R14.

Just checked bikebandit and it only shows the 14 also. Looks like the 15 is no longer imported.

No big deal for me, I run the OEM Bridgestone on the front anyway.

Heads up got a pair of Bridgestone fronts for under $97 each delivered from Revzilla on a price match.

http://www.revzilla.com/search?query=th01&commit=Search

I actually got them for $175 for the pair delivered as I"m a regular customer so they can be reasoned with and I love their service and you get cash back to use on your next purchase plus no questions returns.


The other place had Front and rear combo for about $190 plus shipping for the set.

The last time I went to the UK with a friend we were under the checked baggage limit so I got to bring home with me a set of fender flares not sold in the US for my Nissan Frontier. :D I have also brought back a pair of turn signal lighted mirrors for the same vehicle and because again they are not used on US models.
